Fragen und Antworten
Laundry & Dry Cleaning
- How do I place an order?
It's simple! Go to place my order, select a 2-hour pick-up and delivery window and lean back. You may select a number of additional options in your order. For laundry, rug cleaning and shoe care orders you don’t have to mention what and how many items you are submitting. We will take care of the counting and sorting for you.
- What happens after I have placed my first order?
You will receive a number of reminders by e-mail and SMS before we come by for your first pick up. One of our Cosmobutlers will visit during the 2-hour time window you selected. For laundry and shoe care orders your Cosmobutler will bring a reusable bag for you to drop off your clothes or shoes. You don’t have to sort your items, we will take care of proper sorting and counting for you. Our Cosmobutler will then take your items to one of our qualified laundry or shoe care partners who will carefully sort your items, count them and professionally clean or repair them. Before your scheduled delivery day you will receive a number of reminders. Cosmobutler will then deliver your items during your scheduled 2-hour delivery window.
- How do you ensure my clothes, shoes or carpets are not lost? How do you know how many items I gave you?
We track all our bags through barcodes, which allows us to know exactly where your items are at all times. As soon as your bag reaches one of our processing partners, your items are carefully counted and tagged with your order number. Before packing your items for delivery we count your items again to ensure you receive everything you have submitted to us.
- Do I get to keep the reusable Cosmobutler bag?

- What happens if Cosmobutler damages or loses one of my items?
We have developed the Cosmobutler “guidelines for quality and order processing”, which ensure that our partners follow our stringent inventory control, meaning that all items are counted when arriving at our processing facility, professionally cleaned and pressed, and counted again before leaving our facility. It is our highest priority to ensure all your items are returned to you looking great. In the rare occasion where one of our partner employees makes a mistake and an item is lost or damaged, we will work with you to compensate you fairly. The first step is to write us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org within 3 working days of the delivery date with a brief description of your complaint. If you have received a damaged item please attach images to the e-mail so we can inspect the damage. We will compare the images with the inspection we have done at our facilities prior to treating the item. After our inspection of the case we will come back to you as soon as possible.
For lost or damaged wash & fold items we compensate up to five times the cleaning cost of the wash & fold load. For lost or damaged dry cleaning items we compensate up to ten times the cleaning cost of the item.
Please note: It is an absolute rarity that items do get lost. As per our terms and conditions we wait 20 days before declaring an item is lost, as in 99% of the cases items are not lost but have been misplaced by mistake.
